Synopsis

This 2008 production of Offenbach's satirical operetta is directed by Laurent Pelly and conducted by Sebastien Rouland. This was Offenbach's first full-length piece to portray contemporary Parisian life, unlike his earlier period and mythologically-themed pieces, and went on to become one of his most popular works. The production brings together a rich cast of singers, including Marie Devellereau and Laurent Naouri, under Rouland's lively baton.
